The PP, against
The secretary general of the PP, Teodoro Garcia Egea, has opined that “the Government is right when it heeds the recommendations of the PP “, since” several autonomous governments of the PP had raised the need to dispose of the mask in open spaces “.
And he has indicated that “it would have been good if a dialogue with the autonomous communities “before making the decision.
The PP spokesman in the Senate, Javier naughty, points out in a tweet that the decision has been made “with the backing of the same scientific-technical committee as always, that is, ‘let’s see if we stop talking about pardons or ridiculous with Biden. ‘ Yes sir !! Scientific-technical rigor always !! “.
